For reducing cellular signal strength from an antenna
An attenuator reduces the signal strength between an outside donor antenna and an in-building cell phone signal amplifier. Attenuators are used in unusual situations where outside cellular signal is too strong for the cellular booster to handle. The attenuator is attached between the booster and the coax cable running to the outside antenna.
Attenuators are also sometimes used to reduce the signal strength to an inside broadcast antenna in situations where the booster’s downlink power is so strong that the outside and inside antennas are oscillating.
Most of today’s signal boosters are able manage strong outside signal without needing an attenuator. If you think your system may require an attenuator, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help you find a solution that fits your needs.
